A military promotion is an exciting time. This morning, I was fortunate to capture another special moment for a fellow Air Force Veteran. The promotion ceremony for Major Bowen was held in the Rotunda of the National Archives in Washington DC. The National Archives is the ultimate location for this special occasion since the ceremony takes place in the rotunda where the Constitution of the United States and Declaration of Independence are housed. This is where the officer recites the oath and is pinned to their new rank. I'm always honored to not only capture this special moment but to witness it; i'm grateful to the men and women who serve. Thank you Maj. Bowen for your dedication and service.
